How to Use Microgestin Fe 1/20

Microgestin Fe 1/20 is super easy to use! Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Most women find that taking Microgestin Fe 1/20 before bedtime or with your largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. It is recommended to take your first active pill the first Sunday after your period begins.

After taking 24 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 4 inactive pills. These are reminder pills with no hormones that exist to keep you in the habit of taking your pill every day. These 7 tablets do have ferrous fumarate to prevent anemia from the blood loss with monthly bleeds.

If you do miss one active pill , take two pills as soon as you remember. Then, continue to take one active pill for the rest of the pill pack. If you miss two active pills in a row take two pills per day for two days. However, if you miss three active pills in a row, do not take the missed pills. Instead you should use a back up birth control method for at least 7 days. Note that you may experience some breakthrough bleeding or spotting if you miss three pills in a row.

Remember that Microgestin Fe 1/20 and other hormone based birth control cannot be used to prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. In order to prevent STDs, always use condoms when having sexual intercourse.

Microgestin Fe 1/20 Dosage

Microgestin Fe 1/20 uses a combination of two hormones estrogen (Ethinyl Estradiol, 0.02 mg) and progestin (Norgestimate Acetate 1mg) to make your body think it’s pregnant so a real pregnancy won’t happen.

Microgestin Fe 1/20 Side Effects

The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Microgestin Fe 1/20. Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, swollen feet or ankles, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Women who are breast feeding should not take Microgestin Fe 1/20 because it may decrease breast milk production. Positive side effects are also a possibility, too — reduced acne, fewer mood swings, and other perks are fairly common.

The chances of serious side effects are extremely unlikely, but some cases have been documented such as blood clotting, shortness of breath, migraines, vision problems, slurred speech, confusion, and fainting. Those who wear contacts or are nearsighted may notice vision problems as well.

These may sound scary, but remember — they’re very rare.

What is Microgestin Fe 1/20?

Microgestin Fe 1/20 is a combination oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills) that works to prevent pregnancy by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation), and thickening the cervical mucus, blocking sperm from getting into the uterus and getting to the egg. Microgestin Fe 1/20 is also prescribed to treat acne, reduce the risk of ovarian cysts such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), treat painful or heavy periods, and more.

If you have high blood pressure or take blood pressure medications, this medication is NOT for you. Instead, Pandia Heath Medical group’s doctors recommend other forms of birth control progestin-only pill (POPs), IUD with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), implant (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.

Frequently Asked Questions

There is no direct link between Microgestin Fe 1/20 and weight gain. Some women experience changes in their appetite that may lead to weight gain while taking Microgestin 1/20. Others may find that their bodies retain more fluid while taking Microgestin Fe 1/20, even though they actually don’t gain any body fat.

OOne of our Patient Care Advisors or licensed physicians will always review the medications and supplements you’re currently taking before prescribing Microgestin Fe 1/20. Certain drugs (recreational, over-the-counter, or prescription) can interact with Microgestin Fe 1/20 and make it less effective at preventing pregnancy. Drugs that may interact with Microgestin Fe 1/20 include HIV drugs, anti-seizure drugs, antibiotics, and even herbal supplements like St. John’s wort.

Women who have high blood pressure or take medications to control blood pressure should not take Microgestin Fe 1/20.

If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Microgestin Fe 1/20 is a pretty affordable birth control pill, being $25 per pack. You can also choose any other Microgestin Fe 1/20 generic equivalent such as Blisovi Fe 1/20, Tarina FE 1/20, Aurovela FE 1/20, Junel FE 1/20, Larin FE 1/20, Hailey FE 1/20, or Gildess FE 1/20. Generics have the SAME active ingredients and dosage as the name brand. Watch our video explaining generics vs. brand birth control pills.
